St Vincent’s Church in Altrincham needed to upgrade their old sound system and called upon Apple Sound to design a system that was simple to operate yet highly effective.
The new system was first used on Palm Sunday to a packed church. Using the latest in digital sound processing and Bose® loudspeakers, the system automatically operates the microphones leaving clergy to concentrate on the service. Microphones were fitted to the altar and glass reading desk (using a specially adapted mount), together with wireless microphones, all controlled by a central unit.
Three different types of Bose® loudspeaker were used in nine positions to cover the entire church. Spare inputs were installed for additional microphones and a portable mixer is used to control sound from the music group’s instruments and vocalists. The entire system was optimised during commissioning for maximum speech intelligibility and natural sound reproduction.
